I live in the State of Oklahoma. Many States have wised up about the intrusive nature of the international body known as the United Nations and a global plan known collectively as Agenda 21 to create a UN managed policy Eco-Marxism (oft times called the Green Agenda or Global Warming), international management of food resources (which include land management) and the depopulation of the earth to maintain sustainable resources for the good of all mankinderr check that – I mean humankind.

 

Senate Energy Committee Chairman Cliff Branan appears to be a Conservative voting State Senator yet he has fallen for the propaganda that those that expose the nefarious nature of Agenda 21 are a part of a loony Right Wing fringe Conspiracy Theory:

 

Republican Sen. Cliff Branan, chairman of the Senate Energy Committee, told The Associated Press late Tuesday afternoon that he’d decided not to hear the measure at the panel’s Thursday meeting, likely killing it for this year’s legislative session.

 

Branan said the bill is based on a “fringe conspiracy” that the U.N. wants to use its Agenda 21 plan to encroach on the private property rights of Americans.

 

“I check each bill one at a time, and that was really more of a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist at all,” he told the AP in a phone interview. “It’s a fringe conspiracy-type issue that’s frankly bad public policy.” (READ ENTIRITY; Oklahoma panel won’t hear bill banning Agenda 21 plan; By Dan Holtmeyer; EnidNews.com, 4/2/2013 – Bold Emphasis Mine)

 

State Senator Branan’s predilection to ignore the international intrusion of our National Sovereignty that could lead to future intrusion that is beyond the scope Eco-Marxism led this GOP Energy Chairman to find an excuse to keep anti-Agenda 21 legislation from even being heard in his committee. Agenda 21 is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the UN trying to exert a Left Wing will against the tenets of the U.S. Constitution. A couple of examples are the UN’s international support of gun control and the UN’s agreement with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to prevent criticism of Islam yet allow Muslim nations to persecute Christians.

 

Senator Branan’s excuse came in a threatening email written by Al Gerhart of the Sooner Tea Party. This is excerpted from an Al Gerhart email sent for the Soone4 Tea Party email list:

Senator Branan: Pass HB 1412 out of committee NOW!!

 

All of my acquaintances and I are watching to see how you handle this bill.

This bill must be voted into law this year.

 

Bcc recipients: Forward your version of this email to Sen. Branan ASAP.

 

The only day the bill can move is April 4th–just a few days from now!

Al Gerhart’s answer to the Sooner Tea Party member, the Bcc list, and Senator Branan:

 

Branan,

 

Get that bill heard or I will make sure you regret not doing it. I will make you the laughing stock of the Senate if I don’t hear that this bill will be heard and passed. We will dig into your past, your family, your associates, and once we start on you there will be no end to it.

 

This is a promise.

 

Al Gerhart

Sooner Tea Party

 

I understand Gerhart’s frustration with an Oklahoma State politician that would describe himself as a Conservative not following through with legislation the Oklahoma State House already voted for in an overwhelming majority. BUT threatening political leverage based on looking for dirt to force Branan to at least pass the legislation through Committee and allow the entire Senate is reprehensible. I mean that is what Left Wing Democrats do to throw mud on Conservatives to get the mud to stick on the minds of public opinion.

 

Gerhart has attempted to explain the email by saying it was not blackmail as the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation is investigating, but rather the email was political advocacy. I am willing to give Gerhart a pass on the blackmail charge. As far as political advocacy goes Gerhart must redeem himself by standing against both Agenda 21 and Leftist style propaganda mud throwing. Gerhart stepped his advocacy by actually accusing Cliff Branan of infidelity without any proof of the accusation. Because of this I believe Al Gerhart needs to withdraw from any public face connected to the Tea Party Movement. Gerhart has provided kindling to inspire the Left to say something to the equivalent of ‘See, Tea Partiers are a part of the evil Right Wing fringe and the public cannot rely on the validity of any Tea Party Advocacy or Activism.’

 

Here is the email in its entirety from Al Gerhart:

 

May 2nd, 2013

Sooner Tea Party press release

 

Senate Leadership Ramps up Intimidation

Tactics against Tea Party

Senate Demands Blackmail Charges

Against Tea Party Leader

 

The current controversy isn’t about Senator Branan feigning concern over an email. The fight is about HB 1412; the Agenda 21 nullification bill that Senator Branan is determined to kill in the Senate Energy Committee.

 

HB 1412 passed the House on a bi partisan vote of 67 to 17.

 

Agenda 21 is about taking private property through use restrictions.

 

Agenda 21 is promoted by radical environmentalists, animal rights activists, and those with extreme social agendas.

 

Agenda 21 is about submitting to global control instead of local control.

 

They want to tell us how to live our lives and use our property.

 

Senate Leadership has taken the unprecedented step of asking the OSBI to investigate me on blackmail charges but originally their intent was to investigate me on a physical threat charge. We published the entire email thread in question on Monday in our regular newsletter and pointed out that a physical threat charge must have two points present:

 

There must be an actual physical threat that must be explicitly stated.

 

And it must be an imminent physical threat, i.e., it must set a time frame that the threat will be carried out.

 

Stymied by the facts Senate Leadership has switched tactics and is pushing the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) to investigate based upon blackmail statues.

 

The legal definition of blackmail is:

 

“verbal, written, or printed communication with the intent to extort or gain anything of value from another or to compel another to do an act against his or her will”

Political advocacy however is not blackmail. It is a core First Amendment right, legally permissible and constitutionally protected.

 

The First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

 

Petitioning the government in a matter pending before the legislature is a basic U.S. and Oklahoma Constitutional right. Criminal statutes cannot criminalize what is legally considered constitutionally permissible speech. If that is to be the standard then arrest every leader of the House and Senate; in particular arrest the House and Senate whips. Whips are legislative “enforcers”, who can offer inducements or threaten punishments for legislators to force them to vote according to the leadership’s agenda. Their only job is to get legislators to do things they don’t want to do.

 

The implications of Senate leadership’s actions are enormous for grassroots activists, journalists, or any citizen that works to hold politicians politically accountable. Any citizen who works for openness, transparency, and accountability of elected officials or wishes to expose corruption is now at risk. Those that think they are untouchable because they are term limited are the beneficiaries of this criminalization of First Amendment speech.

 

Yes there are those that can convolute our criminal statutes into a criminalizing free speech. They can take a blackmail criminal statute that covers those communicating in private about a private matter and twist the statute into criminalizing communications about a public matter that was communicated in a very public fashion. Blackmail has always been limited to threats on issues that are not made public; indeed once the issue has been publicized the blackmailer loses his power over the victim. Remember that the email in particular was sent not only to Senator Branan but to the individual that had copied his email to the Sooner Tea Party.

 

Remember that that individual had an extensive Bcc list and had encouraged them to forward his email. Is it not obvious that this email was intended to be spread far and wide in a most public fashion?

 

Core First Amendment speech and petitioning the government on a matter of public concern must be protected at all costs. There are those that will take issue with the Sooner Tea Party tactics. Perhaps they are not able to stomach what must be done or they might take offense of how we do things but they cannot deny that our tactics are what makes the Sooner Tea Party different, unique, and effective Politics is a battle over ideas and values that is fought mostly in individual battles or over individual legislation where both side tries to move the ball forward while defending ideas, principles, and legislation. The battle is not fought with guns and knives; it is fought with pen and paper, and with emails and phone calls. As in all battles there will be winners and losers as well as collateral damage.

 

It is impossible to draw a full and complete picture of a politician without looking at their family, friends, and associates. Digging into a politician’s background is basic political strategy that has and is being practiced by every political opponent in the state and it is practiced by every journalist in the world. There will be those individuals that are close to a politician that will pay a price for standing so close. If you don’t believe me ask Billy Carter, ask former presidential candidate John Edward’s wife, or ask former District Attorney Wes Lane about how his wife was treated.

 

The Senate’s attempt to criminalize constitutionally protected speech and to cast a chill upon citizens and grassroots activists is nothing more than an admission that they are losing control over the individual Senators. If we weren’t effective then they would not have attacked us. Political pain and embarrassment will be necessary if the citizens expect to regain control over the Senate and to regain their right to representation. Special interests want things to remain like they are but this country and this state is spiraling into uncertainty so the time for “nice” behavior is long past.

 

The political games where the House, the Senate, and the Governor take turns killing needed legislation to protect special interests is over. If they think they can use a term limited politician to kill legislation that the public supports then we will be sure that that term limited politician has that treachery attached to his name from now on. We are not afraid of the politicians or the stooges that do their bidding. We don’t want anything from them except that the public interest come first. We are here to stay and we will never back down.

 

We ask the citizens of Oklahoma to contact Senator Branan at Branan@oksenate.gov and demand that he allow HB 1412 to be heard.

 

You can call the Senate switchboard and ask for him by name at (405) 524-0126.

 

We also ask the citizens of Oklahoma to contact their own senator and ask them to fight for HB 1412 and stop Agenda 21 from stealing property rights from Oklahoma citizens.

 

This fight isn’t about rough language in an email; this fight is about the ability of Senator Branan acting on Senate leadership orders, to override the other 148 legislators to steal property rights from over three million Oklahomans.

Gerhart’s self-defense of his email and unsubstantiated accusation probably is not felony blackmail, but it definitely is dirty politics of the kind the Tea Party Movement should not utilize. Rather the Tea Party Movement should collectively condemn the Al Gerhart kind of “advocacy” whether it is down in a Conservative or Liberal-Left camp and whether it is from the GOP or the Dems. Part of the First Principles to defend the Founding Father implementation of Constitutional Law by and for the People through a Republic form of government is the maintenance of Christian honor. Political smearing especially when the smearing is a lie that cannot be proven is not honorable. As far as I know the Gerhart accusation of Branan infidelity is a baseless created rumor for the effect of defaming Branan’s character. Rather than going for a blackmail charge Branan needs to litigate against Gerhart as part of preventing this kind of political “advocacy” from darkening Tea Partiers.

 

On the other hand Oklahoma State Senator Cliff Branan is either a Conservative moron or is in the pockets of Oklahoman Establishment Republicans to advocate Agenda 21 as something good for local Oklahomans. Branan is a moron to make an unsubstantiated statement saying roughly this message:

 

The chairman of the Oklahoma Senate Energy Committee says he won’t hear a bill intending to outlaw state organizations from following suggestions from the UN’s Agenda 21 sustainability plan.

 

Republican Sen. Cliff Branan says he decided not to hear HB1412 at the Energy Committee’s Thursday meeting. He says the bill is based on a “fringe conspiracy” that the UN wants to use Agenda 21 to infringe on American’s private property rights.

 

The bill would prohibit towns or counties from implementing any part of the nonbinding, voluntary plan. It also prohibits working with UN-affiliated groups. The bill passed the House 67-17. (READ THE REST; Okla. panel won’t hear bill banning Agenda 21 plan; OKNews9; Updated: Apr 02, 2013 5:15 PM CDT)

 

I found this lengthy article that utilizes United Nations’ documentation to demonstrate that anti-Agenda 21 exposés is not the work of fringe Right Wingers. Rather exposing Agenda 21 is an imperative Conservative process to protect the Rights established by our U.S. Constitution particularly America’s Bill of Rights.

 

I am excerpting from the article entitled, “Agenda 21 Declares War On Mankind.” The article is written by Jurriaan Maessen and posted on 8/8/12 on the blog Pragmatic Witness.

*****************************

 

In the last couple of years the omnipresent force known as Agenda 21 is meeting with increasing resistance worldwide. With the rise of the alternative media, the flow of decade-long propaganda efforts is finally being hindered. As a result of rocks thrown in the stream- the once steady water flow is now exposing itself at every turn as it’s forced to bend and twist its way forward. Ironically, the UN and its affiliate accomplices have themselves to thank for the counter-effort. The internet- as well as some pretty thorough archiving on the part of these transnational bureaucracies- have allowed researchers to withdraw information directly from the lion’s den. As a result of this development, we can display a plethora of documents, often written by UN personnel and ideologues, that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is a concerted strategy in place to brainwash (there’s no other name for it) the human population of the planet into accepting Agenda 21 and its inherent depopulation proposals. Furthermore, this pool of document has revealed a plan to de-industrialize the west and to use the “green agenda” to do so. In the last few decades Agenda 21 has been UN policy, and all of its subdivisions were commanded to fall in line.

 

 

This is the word- Agenda 21: the UN strategy for redistributing the wealth accumulated by the “North” in order to create a completely “balanced” world society- under auspices of the United Nations of course and the private central banks controlling it. This can only come about by destroying the middle-class. A sudden redistribution and industrialization would not do- for the middle-class would undoubtedly rise in defiance against it. Therefore, Sachs argues for an incremental and carefully planned dissolution of the middle-class phase by phase:

 

“To be meaningful, the strategies should cover the time-span of several decades. Thirty-five to forty years seems a good compromise between the need to give enough time to the postulated transformations and the uncertainties brought about by the lengthening of the time-span. The retooling of industries, even in periods of rapid growth, requires ten to twenty years. The restructuration and the expansion of the infrastructures requires several decades and this is a crucially important sector from the point of view of environment.”

 

Then Sachs plunges into his most shocking statement:

 

“However, the single most important reason to consider the transition strategies over a minimum of thirty-five to forty years stems from the non-linearity of these strategies; they should be devised as a succession of changing priorities over time. A good illustration is provided by the population transition. In order to stabilize the populations of the South by means other than wars or epidemics, mere campaigning for birth control and distributing of contraceptives has proved fairly inefficient.”

 

Sachs argues that “an accelerated programme of social and economic development of the rural areas should be the outmost priority in the first phase of a realistic population stabilization scheme.”

 

 

The other, more sinister element of Agenda 21 is of course the concerted effort on the part of the global elite, through multilateral treaties and regulations, to not only control the populations of the world but to cull them.

 

Exhibit B: Using the Mass-Media To Cull the Overall Human Population

 

The 1973 document Mass Media, Family Planning and Development: Country Case Studies on Media Strategy is a good example of how the UN utilizes mass media to propogandize (sic) people into cutting their numbers. In this particular document we learn something about the strategies to be implemented in the eugenics-based family planning project of the future. Based on case studies in third world countries, the document proposes the creation of a “family planning communication resource unit” for every nation concerned. The reason being, so the report states, that “culturally, there is an emphasis on fertility, and the birth of children to the family is celebrated, as a symbol of prosperity and for status for women.” Because UNESCO-chieftains can’t have that, the reduction of a population should be accomplished through an elaborate media campaign, utilizing all possible avenues. Ancient tribal instincts, revolving around procreation and creativity, become suspect- as does religion and tribal mythology. The following strategies dates back from the early 1970s- but have now been formalized worldwide by Agenda 21 as enshrined within its dark articles.

 

The writers of the 1973 document mean not to destroy the human tendencies, they mean to use them to their own advantage and that of their masters. “The religion”, they say, “supports the idea that children are ‘God’s Greatest Blessing’ but can also be used to encourage the idea that every child should be given the best opportunities parents can offer. There is also a favourable attitude to economic development, a desire to raise living standards, and a desire for education. These factors are helpful in the development of a Preliminary Media Strategy.”

 

 

… The famous 1994 population conference in Cairo, held in the wake of Agenda 21?s formal kick-off, outlined some of the proposed strategies to be implemented. Then Secretary-General of the UN, Boutros Boutros-Ghali in his opening statement on the International Conference on Population and Development, stated that:

 

“I am not exaggerating when I say that not only does the future of the human society depend on this Conference but also the efficacy of the economic order of the planet on which we live.”

 

During a follow-up-meeting held in New York on December 1994, the United Nations’ participants came up with some practical solutions to the “population problem”– one of which is the integration of population issues with matters of “environment” and “human development”:

 

 

The report goes on to list these arguments with which populations worldwide should be lured into embracing modern-day eugenics as a sensible policy:

 

“The “Statement of Commitment on Population and Development by the United Nations System”, drafted by the Working Group, is divided into three sections: a general introduction stressing the commitment by the UN agencies and organizations to implement ICPD (International Conference on Population and Development); a section on the linkages between population issues and other development issues; and a concluding section calling for global partnership in addressing these interrelated issues.”
